Weekend Fun



If you are looking for some weekend fun and some weekend eye candy, then you should definitely check out the Bosch Net Zero home at Serenbe.  It is open through July and features some stunning interiors furnished by Ballard Designs.  The Bosch Net Zero home really shows that living sustainably can be stylish as well.


Stylist Jill Sharp Brinson infused this home with rustic elements and warm and cozy style to create a comfortable home. She even used a few items that were found in the woods around Serenbe.


The bedroom below is one of my favorite rooms in the home. I love the fabric hanging behind the headboard. Note to self: Must use this in a client’s design soon. Any takers?


Wood stacked to the top of the fire place.  LOVE!  Not very practical but it looks so pretty for pictures.

There is a lot more to see so check it out if you get a chance.

**The 1,650 square foot home features 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and will be open for complimentary tours Fridays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.  The home is located at 10660 Serenbe Lane in Chattahoochee Hills, GA 30268.

Chase turns 1!

Last week Chase turned one, and this past weekend we threw him a “Backyard Barnyard” birthday bash.  It was so much fun.  I never realized how much goes into planning a birthday party.  It was a lot of work but so worth it.

I got a lot of ideas for the party off of Pinterest and I also found some invites on Etsy that I recreated on photoshop.


I kept the food pretty simple.  The menu included pigs in a blanket, “pasta pigtales” (pasta salad), watermelon on a stick, a veggie patch and chicken nuggets.

For his party favors I bought 3 packs of bubbles from the Dollar Tree and made custom “Baaa Baaa Baaables” labels.


I opted for cupcakes in lieu of a cake.  For the toppers I went with a combo of itty bitty flags and circle toppers.



And this is Little Bit’s face after his first cupcake.  Don’t let him fool you.  He loved it!


He is on this funny face kick right now and his puffer fish face cracks me up.


Happy Birthday Sweet Little Man!!!

In Her Shoes


Yesterday could not have been a more exciting day!  I got to do an appearance for the show and it was so much fun.  Chip and I went on Better Mornings Atlanta which airs on the local CBS station to dish about Elbow Room.  It was so cool getting to see a behind the scenes look at a live morning newscast.  In case you didn’t get to see it yesterday.  Here is the webcast of it…




A special thanks to Camila from Effortless Style for featuring me in her “In Her Shoes” series.  It was so much fun to chronicle the day yesterday for her.  If you are  curious about how my day really went yesterday, then you can read the post here.
